frank discussions. mark, you and i have covered foreign policy a long time. this is a very unhappy group of people. to a certain extent there's spying everywhere. we know that. it's a little shock. there's gambling at mr. rick's. the germans want the same special relationship of no spying agreement that we have with the uk. at the same time, i think there really is anger about they said the flash point was merkel's cell phone. >> yeah, i think that's right, andrea. it's not just anger but embarrassment on their part. remember, the first allegations of potential nsa surveillance in europe came up during the summer. at the time the germans were among those saying we understand it. we think as a dispute it's ebbing away. our concerns have been more or less met. i think there's now a feeling they climbed down and didn't make a huge case out of it in the summer only to find out it was more persuasive, lasted longer and involved the top official and their government. so they have a lot of egg on their own face. what was interesting about the long article der spiegel published over the weekend,
of the obama administration's handling of the region, the last measure of american foreign policy should be how it is received by the house. if there were a price for most irresponsible foreign policy, it would be surely be awarded to saudi arabia. it is the nation most responsible for the rise of islamic radicalism and militancy across the world. over the past four decades, the kingdoms immense oil wealth has been used to underwrite the export of an extreme intolerant and violent version of islam. go anywhere in the world from germany to indonesia and you will find islamic centers flush with saudi money spouting intolerance and hate. a top treasury official said -- >> if i could snap my fingers and cut off funding from one country, it would be saudi arabia. >> hillary clinton confirmed that saudi arabia remained a critical financial base for terrorism. she also said that there was only limited action to stop flow of funds from taliban and other such terrorists groups. saudi arabia was one of three countries in the world to recognize and support the taliban-led government in afghanistan until t
and other foreign policy challenges facing the nation, general jack keen, retired four-star army general, former army vice chief of staff, fox news military analyst. general, great to have you with us. >> good to be here. >> this is, as i say, sordid politics, but it masks a real issue. and that is the ability of congress to participate in the governance of the country. what's your reaction to the administration position that a criminal investigation by the fbi about what is obviously an attack on the country which generally falls within the purview of intelligence agencies and the military would be the reason to block efforts to understand better what transpired? >> yeah, it makes no sense, lou. and i'm sure you have the same instincts. we should be able to conduct a congressional investigation, the representatives of the people, to find out what happened when a consulate was burned to the ground, an am babassador was kid and the cia was driven out of the country. that is serious business. they do not have to have an open hearing. they can do a closed-door hearing to get at with the wit
and they are very upset. you think what implications will this have not only on foreign policy and trade but what's preventing them from saying screw you to us. >> you know what's preventing them? we're the exceptional nation. what are you going to do? >> i think president obama has serious mending to do and i don't think he deserves the blame but he has a job ahead of him to rebuild the trust. >> we're witnessing a surveillance industrial complex that is increasingly going rogue. it's broader at home and broader abroad than they told the president. >> what they are doing to us. >> i have to be on record i do believe what the president has said this week and i have to be on the r0rd there's a problem when the nsa doesn't tell the president what they are doing at this high level. >> the fans have been weighing in and saying whether they believe the president was ignorant of what the nsa was doing. 46% said the president probably did know about the program. several ways you can get involved here. the poll is up on the facebook page and also on the cycle.msnbc.com. one of the great legal minds of ou
interests as a result of this revelation is as important as the foreign policy consequences, because what european company will want to use american networking capacity and other types of computer technologies as a result of this. finally, one other thing. i'm really embarrassed for this white house. i feel awfully sorry for the president because this is basically going to undermine the -- our transatlantic alliance for many years to come, just at a time when we're negotiating an iran agreement. where our european allies are so important to us. >> meanwhile there are some republican leaders coming out, republican congressman peter king defending the u.s. spying on world leaders. take a listen to this. >> i think the president should stop apologizing, stop being defensive. the reality is the nsa has saved thousands of lives, not just in the united states but also in france and germany and throughout europe. and we're not doing this for the fun of it. this is to gather valuable intelligence which helps not just us but also helps the europeans. >> so, mark, we have allies that are upset with
states, through our conduct of foreign policy to the defense matters, to economic matters, and i'm a strong supporter of it. >> of all of it? >> i'm a strong supporter of our generic capability to collect intelligence. i don't want to comment on any one particular controversy or piece of the programs. >> the white house says that president obama did not know about these spy programs on specific world leaders, especially german chancellor angela merkel. obviously you're not a member of the obama administration, but do you find that credible? could it be that there would be surveillance programs of that type that president obama would not know about? >> jake, i'm not going to get into the specifics. it would be inappropriate if there were such a program, i couldn't talk about it. it would be classified. >> do you think the snowden leaks have hurt america's ability to defend itself? >> i do. i think he's a traitor. i think -- i hope we can catch him at some point and that he receives the justice he deserves. >> how have they hurt the united states? i think there are a lot of people,
for this president. you know, this president, his foreign policy doctrine, and i think it's a good thing, has relied very strongly on partnerships. this has not been a president who's wanted to cowboy into situations on his own. we will always defend ourselves and our interests unilaterally, but from the very beginning of his presidency, he has wisely, in my way of thinking, emphasized the need to build partnerships. if you're going to try to do that, then instances like this can be particularly corrosive. so the president needs to, with our allies and with the american public, be very clear about what has happened but also about the dramatic steps that are going to be taken to put these programs back into some acceptable form. the american public knows that we've got major security challenges. we have to keep the american public safe. but right now, you know, i think i saw a washington post editorial that said the nsa is losing the benefit of the doubt. they get the benefit of the doubt because they're keeping us safe, but these recent revelations are causing them to lose the benefit of the doubt,
or any particular foreign policy. so the idea he'd be disengaged, unless something happened, i've never seen in the two years of intensity when i was there, i just don't buy it. >> now to the embattled health secretary, kathleen sebelius and her highly anticipated testimony today about obama care and the web site and its failures. our chief congressional correspondent dana bash has more. >> reporter: kathleen sebelius came with a clear sound-bite length mea culpa. >> i apologize. i'm accountable to you for fixing these problems. >> she repeatedly fell on her sword about the problem-plagued obama care web site. >> i told the president that we were ready to go. clearly i was wrong. >> reporter: republicans eagerly pointed out that the web site wasn't even working during this 3 1/2 hour hearing. >> it's been down the whole type you've been testifying. >> reporter: democrats were eager to point out the positive. >> women can no longer be charge more than a man for the same coverage. >> reporter: but some worried web site problems are masking all that and want to be sure it will be fixed by
. this is beyond obama care. this is the whole economy and our foreign policy. >> but if there is no republican leader per se and there isn't. it's a divided party. who is going to tie it together? who is going to be the one to present it to the measure people? it can't be job boehner. nobody knows him, all right? it can't be him. you have got cruise. you have got rubio. you have got christie. christie is a governor though. i don't think is he going to do it. you have got rand paul. it's very hard to get a cohesive message out to the american people when you don't have a messenger. >> but i think what they can do legislatively is they can say, look, there is so much chaos on some levels with what they're claiming their policies are going to do that, frankly, our role is going to be to block what they are trying to do. an extension of obama care. they have got to do that. >> didn't work -- >> -- no, that didn't work, bill, on other things that obama tried. he tried to pivot today back to carbon and the green economy. if he tries any more stuff on that, the republicans have got to say, look, they
, that intelligence capability is enormously important to the united states, to our conduct of foreign policy, to the fed's matters, to economic matters and i'm a strong supporter of it. >> reporter: the director of national intelligence, james clapper announced overnight he's declassifying a trove of documents about collection under the foreign intelligence surveillance act or fisa. later today, clapper and the head of the nsa, keith alexander will be testifying on the hill. kate, we can expect them to face hard questions as well. we'll try to ask some of our own. >> absolutely. review on multiple fronts but what will come of it? jim sciutto, great to see you. thank you so much. >>> the obama administration is facing ongoing criticism on another front. obama care. the president'sed visors are fighting back on twitter, challenging claims millions of people could lose coverage because of the law. the administration is extending the signup window by six weeks. senior white house correspondent brianna keilar is here with the very latest. >> that signup deadline now march 31st. it had been februa

in broad daylight. >>> president obama is hearing tough new criticism of his foreign policy. in an interview yesterday former vice president dick cheney said he doesn't trust the president -- trust the president to stand behind israel and keep nuclear weapons out of iran. >> you don't believe he has the best interests of the united states in terms of our national security in the middle east? >> i don't believe he does. >> you don't believe his word can be trusted? >> correct. >> that's a serious question. >> it certainly is. >> to say that to the president of the united states. >> that's right. >> in a democratic country. >> but i think this president is doing enormous damage to our standing, to our capacity to influence events. we are rapidly eroding our ability to have any impact on what's going on in the middle east. the last time we walked away from afghanistan, for example, back in the '80s, we'd been there heavily involved supporting the move against the soviets but then we turned around after the soviets departed. they got a civil war and osa

, the difference is the president was awful lucky we had an affordable care act all week because of the foreign policy and here israel dropping bombs in syria on missiles that were sort of underreported was to me a pretty big deal. i mean, we have that problem that's still there. we have the middle east and an i iranian problem and did drop off the screen. i thought that was very important. >> what about obama care? you were telling us earlier repeal and replace with what, right? >> it is not just repeal and replace and go back to vermont. i don't agree with anything but they're doing something different and republicans have to get into exactly what they think it's resetting obama care, redoing it. that's still for another day. >> thank you so much. christine, kayton, david, all thank you so much. thank you for watching. i'm richard lui. i'll see you tomorrow right back here at 3:00 p.m. eastern time but first "disrupt with karen finney."
